This spell hurls a small bolt of magical energy which never misses.

Magic Dart is a level 1 Conjurations spell which throws a dart of energy at an opponent, dealing 1d8 physical damage at max power, and will never miss. This is reduced by AC, making it useless against even moderately armoured opponents. What this spell lacks in lethality compared to other level 1 spells, it makes up for with excellent range and the fact that it can't miss the target, which makes it useful for activating Iskenderun's Battlesphere. Even so, Magic Dart becomes obsolete as a combat spell by the mid-game; forget it once you've acquired some more potent attack options.

Wizards and Conjurers begin with this spell memorized.
